    All the kids are talking about it. And now, so are government officials and corporate bigwigs. An app typically known for short, clever videos (and lots of dancing), TikTok has recently found itself at the center of international scrutiny. Critics say that TikTok’s massive presence in the US is a national security risk because the app is owned by ByteDance, a Chinese tech company. Business leaders are also worried, in some cases asking their employees to delete the app from their devices. But what risks does TikTok really pose? And is this debate more than just a proxy for rising tensions between the US and China? This week on Gadget Lab, WIRED staff writer Louise Matsakis joins us to...
    When it comes to most apps, you’ve got power users and you’ve got passive users. Passive users might download an app, sure, but they only lurk there from time to time; maybe they forget the app exists on their phone altogether. The power users, though, help shape what an app ultimately is. They spend hours engaging with it, creating and sharing content for free, and contributing to the kind of commentary that keeps people coming back. That’s true on social media apps, and it’s especially true on something like Citizen. Citizen is an app that encourages people to live-stream incidents occurring in their neighborhoods. Trained technicians hired by Citizen listen for official emergency dispatches, then send alerts to users through...

    Beverly Johnson is calling on Anna Wintour and Condé Nast to adopt a “Beverly Johnson Rule” that would force the publisher to interview “a diverse set of candidates” when hiring.

I also invite chief executives of companies in the fashion, beauty and media industries to adopt this rule.” Filed under anna wintour ,  beverly johnson ,  conde nast ,  vogue ,  vogue...

    After several people of color hammered Condé Nast online, claiming that it has a racist culture, journalist Noor Tagouri — whom the publisher once misidentified as a different Muslim woman — says it apologized for the gaffe, but then kept screwing her around. In 2019, Condé’s Vogue memorably confused Tagouri with Pakistani actress Noor Bukhari. And even though Vogue called it a “painful misstep,” Tagouri said on Twitter Thursday that after the mistake, she offered to hold a diversity and inclusion event at the mag for free. “They said *NO* because it would make it look like Vogue has ‘a problem.’ ” Tagouri says a town hall for all Condé’s magazines — rather than an event for Vogue alone — was...

That man...
    After the editor of Bon Appétit resigned on Monday over diversity pay practices and an old photo of him in brownface, Condé Nast staffers have begun raising questions about another executive’s old social-media posts. During an all-staff meeting on Tuesday, one anonymous employee posted a question asking about Condé Nast Entertainment chief Oren Katzeff’s old tweet about sexual consent. “Wonder why CNE has a company culture that allows leadership to have posts like this on their timelines,” the person wrote, linking to a since-deleted 2010 tweet in which Katzeff wrote: “Earlier today, I saw a girl wearing a shirt that said ‘No means Yes!’ That might explain why the guy holding her hand was smiling…” That tweet has since been...
    Calls for the resignation of Bon Appétit’s longtime editor in chief Adam Rapoport reached a boiling point after a photo surfaced that showed him in brownface. A freelance writer for the Condé Nast-owned foodie magazine on Monday unearthed and posted a 2013 photo, originally posted on Instagram by Rapoport’s wife Simone Shubuck, that shows the couple seemingly in brownface for an apparent Halloween costume. The image, which has since been taken down from Shubuck’s account, featured the caption “me and my papi” and the hashtag “boricua.” Neither Condé Nast nor Rapoport responded to requests for comment. I do not know why Adam Rapoport simply doesn’t write about Puerto Rican food for @bonappetit himself!!! https://t.co/rW0k5tjMoS pic.twitter.com/odZnFLz2gd — chez tammie (@tammieetc) June...
